Will a move towards digital, decentralised teaching transform a model that once seemed so entrenched? Will the loss of exams become permanent for many? In an online panel with the Cambridge Union, four world-renowned figures share their perspective on what the future holds for education in the wake of the coronavirus pandemic.
This event will be live-streamed to all on the Union’s YouTube channel, at: https://www.youtube.com/user/cambridgeunionsoc.
